The Eagle Shines Again

My 07 Eagle was the typical 6 year old camper.
Dull till you waxed it but the wax just doesn't last long in Texas.
I decided to do the Zep treatment to it and boy howdy what a shine. My brother did his mh last year and it is still shining.
Here is some before and after pictures. I can say it is a pretty easy process once you get the prep work done.

Never heard of Zep. Got more info to share? Apply like regular wax, by hand, electric buffer? What was your cost?

BTW - it looks excellent.

It is a floor wax believe it or not. But dont let that stop you from using it. This stuff has been being applied to campers and motorhomes for a few years now. I found it on another forum and thought i would try it.
Total cost about 30 to 40 dollars.
I plan on putting a new thread up on the how to part of the process, if enough people are interested.
No buffing needed

Great results!!

I've seen the use of Zep on RV's in the past......, and now my '05' Eagle Filon front cap needs a little TLC to put the shine back in it. I've used Aerospace 303 over the years on my Filon surface with great success, but the front cap has always been a challenge.

Guess I'll have to give the cap a Zep shine next spring

Bob like you i have tried everything to keep my trailer shining. Spent a lot of money and time on waxes and polish only to watch my work disappear in a couple of months. I have read a lot of threads on the Zep in the last year and it seemed like it was the best option short of having full body paint with clear coat applied.

I seem to recall that Zep got a little hard to find or maybe underwent a name-change. Is it still Zep and where do you find it? What prep did you do?
Looks NICE!
